LEGO Formula E Porsche 99x Electric 42137 Review: First Electric Car Turned Into A Technic Model
Sharing is caring!

Fancy a super fast Electric race-car? LEGO’s third Technic Porsche and first electric car to be made into a Technic model has been launched.

When my 10 year old was asked to pick his set of choice, his eyes were naturally drawn to its sleek design. His fascination with electric cars was piqued as he focused on building the Formula E Porsche 99x.

The 422-piece set will keep those hands busy for at least a good part of the day and definitely rewarding as this set has a pull-back function! This means plenty of racing action – hands-free!

This Porsche model is actually an authentic model replica of the Formula E Porsche race car in real life, complete with sponsor logos. It should be a real treat for those huge fans of Formula E. Motorsport fans ages 9 and up would certainly find this LEGO set very satisfying to build as it provides challenging components like the axels.

It is quite a straightforward set and quite predictable as a Technics set. Right in the heart of the model, the builder will be constructing the main feature of the car which is the pull back function. It will be attached to the tail fin of the car and will enable the builder to have tons of fun later on.

One can also enjoy the car even more using the LEGO Technic AR app upon scanning the car as there are games to play.


Builder’s Review of LEGO Formula E Porsche 99x Electric

Builder’s Review of LEGO Formula E Porsche 99x Electric

My 10 year old was stoked to have his first electric car LEGO model. Here’s his review of it:

I find the Formula E Porsche 99X a very cool set as it has very detailed and unique features. Some of my struggles include placing the wheels and engines of the car. The Porsche has very unique features unlike many other LEGO cars, for example on the box, it gives you a QR code to scan. In the QR code, it provides you with an amazing Augmented Reality experience.

Needless to say, this set has been racing through the living room. I was impressed by how sturdy it was even with endless manhandling. It holds up well and withstands crashes into furniture. Repairs were not required and this is indeed a dream car.
